Abstract

This paper is a renewal of a practice carried on by L. W. Wood in the 1930s, that of presenting each year one of the more interesting geologic sections encountered during the year's work by the members of the geology section of the Iowa State Highway Commission. The Devonian section at the Klein quarry in the NW¼, Sec. 2, T. 79 N., R. 7 W., Johnson County, was chosen because the exposed face and extensive coring offered an opportunity to study the members of the Cedar Valley formation and the upper members of the Wapsipinicon formation in a single location, in an area where the study of these units must be carried out at widely separated exposures.
